You're Internet connection is just probably too slow and it is not loading up fast enough to keep up with the stream. You can start a song and pause it for a few minutes so enough of it buffers so you can listen to the complete song before it catches up with your buffer. Unfortunately you have to do this for every track, so you won't be able to listen to jams or transitions in real time. GL.

Thanks. I've been testing that out, and it works, but you have to let it buffer for reeeeally long (maybe 5 minutes) to even get a whole track. Sheesh, I'll have to keep a file of "tuning" and listen to that in between songs if I want the concert experience ... except that won't work for jams :-(

We're having trouble getting our magic jack to work, too, so my husband is thinking we'll need to upgrade to a more expensive internet service (sigh) if it really is faster. We'll see. It's an adventure! I've lived in the "third world" before, but not when internet was an option. Just goes to show how spoiled I've become to be whining -- online, no less -- about no flawless streaming on demand!

It is amazing how deeply the fix slowly coils .
It reminds me of the title of this song .

Cute. The title, that is. You don't think my internet is fast enough to actually watch YouTube, do you?!?

Interestingly, we have no electricity right now, but internet is on. So: downloaded music or movies by computer, yes; internet, yes; lights or TV, no.

Not that we have a TV yet, anyway. Which is kind of a relief. Mean mean parents, bringing their kid to a place with no TV (evil grin) ... Actually, kiddo really likes the place so far.
